Santa Fe College Team Physicians
A message from Director of Athletics, Jim Keites:
There are many support services for student-athletes of which we are proud to offer, but none more so than the relationship we have developed with the doctors, athletic trainers and health care staff at the University of Florida.
Injuries are an unwelcome part of the game that comes without warning and often causes great mental and physical anguish. Although we cannot totally prevent injuries, I am relieved to say that we can and do offer the very best post injury treatment available for our student-athletes.
Their dedication to our student-athletes, the coaches and the college is second to none. Their attention to detail is admirable and their ability to build trusting relationships with the student-athletes is comforting.
SF Athletics and UF Healthcare is a winning team!
